Dr. Mettu's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Mettu "Pradeep Mettu, MD is an ophthalmologist with subspecialty training in Neuro-Ophthalmology, Orbital Diseases, and Oculofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He completed his Ophthalmology Residency and Neuro-ophthalmology Fellowship at Duke University and his Oculofacial Plastic and Orbital Surgery Fellowship at the University of Minnesota and the Mayo Clinic. He has received numerous awards and published extensively on topics ranging from facial filler injections to the management of orbital tumors. His practice focuses on disorders affecting the eyelids (including droopy eyelids, eyelid cancer resection, and reconstruction of the eyelids and surrounding areas), conditions involving the eye socket or orbit (including orbital tumors, orbital inflammation, orbital fractures), and issues involving the tear drainage system (i.e. blocked tear ducts). He offers comprehensive care for patients with neuro-ophthalmic problems (including optic nerve issues and acquired misalignment of the eyes). He also specializes in mid and upper facial cosmetic procedures (including upper blepharoplasty or "eyelid lift" and lower blepharoplasty to improve "puffy" lower eyelids) and performs non-surgical rejuvenation procedures including injections of botulinum toxin (i.e. Botox and Xeomin) and fillers."
